This event featured the women of the 2008 Yale World Fellows in a panel discussion moderated by Professor Judith Resnik, former Co-Chair of the Women Faculty Forum.
During the panel, the women of the World Fellows reflected on the following questions:
- 1. How, if at all, does gender affect your work?
- 2. Has gender played a role in the trajectory of your career?
- 3. Is gender, in turn, a focus of your work? Do you work on issues that you or others perceive as "gender coded"?
Following the panel, a reception with refreshments were held on the First Floor of Betts House.
This year, WFF and other women's groups on campus hope to start a spoken word performance group as a forum for women's voices and a discussion about gender in the Yale Community. Spoken word performance consists of monologues, stories, or poetry, usually personal in content, performed by individuals or groups. At its best it can be personally touching, but also a raw and powerful tool for advocacy. The group, which we hope will include women from every part of the Yale community (undergrad, grad, staff, faculty, and administrative), will meet regularly and practice in a workshop environment, and ultimately perform our work in the first half of second semester.
